On my second visit to the Broomfield, Colorado, Depot Museum, I was escorted through the museum's interior and educated by the knowledgeable staff. I also got to see the collections plus preservation and cataloging efforts by dedicated people who spend their valuable time educating Broomfield's citizens.
My first foray into what I hope is a long-running series: ghost towns. First up, Dearfield, Colorado, founded by O. T. Jackson in 1910. It's the site of a former African-American agricultural colony that thrived until the Great Depression and Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Here are photos of the ramshackle remains.
